    Good footage of Charlie Kunz and the Casani Club Orchestra, London.

  • Description

    The Casani Club, London.

    Full titles read: "THE CASANI CLUB ORCHESTRA, directed by Charlie Kunz. In a popular cameo "The Japanese Sandman. - Vocalist - Harry Bentley."

    Good M/S of Charlie Kunz playing the piano smiling. L/S's of ladies and gentlemen dancing, to the song "The Japanese Sandman", many are holding balloons and wearing party hats (there is a real party atmosphere).

    M/S's and L/S's of men turning large dials and knobs on what looks like either sound recording equipment or radio tuning equipment. The next few shots also have the subtitles of the song which appear at the top of the screen. L/S's of large radio masts and young children lying in their beds.

    Several more good shots of the orchestra playing and the guests dancing at the club which includes some very good C/U's of Charlie Kunz smiling at the camera as he plays the piano. More C/U's of children sleeping in bed.

    Note: The Casani Club was owned by the dance teacher, Santos Casani.
